National’s Fordsville, KY Facility Earns SHARPS Recertification for Workplace Safety

National’s Fordsville, KY manufacturing facility has been recertified by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) for the Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARPS) for excellence in workplace safety. Fordsville is one of only fifteen companies in Kentucky that have earned SHARPS status.

The SHARP designation was designed by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration to encourage and recognize excellence in occupational safety and health. During preparation for SHARP eligibility, employers learn how to maintain safe and healthy workplaces through the development and implementation of proven and effective safety and health management systems.

“This has truly been a great partnership with OSHA (The Kentucky Labor Cabinet).” said Fordsville’s Safety Coordinator Leslie Fuqua. “Safety is driven by our people, for our people. “Choices”, our safety campaign, has really helped everyone get in that safety mindset. I can truly say that our people take pride in being “My Brother’s Keeper” as they look out for one another. At the end of the day returning home safely to their families is the most important thing to everyone here.”
